Good Friday everyone. Our heat wave got off to an oven like start on Thursday with much of the bluegrass state baking under 100 degree temps. The triple digit heat is likely to be with us again today and Saturday. There will be a little difference in the weather of the next few days as we run the risk of a shower or thunderstorm going up.
Temps today will be in the 98-105 degree range for much of central and eastern Kentucky. 104 is the record high for Lexington today and for the month of June. That is in jeopardy if we can get enough sunshine. Your temp trackers:

Scattered storms will be possible into the weekend with a slightly better chance heading into 4th of July week. The GFS has been advertising this for the past few days:
Have a great Friday and take care.
